Never Stop Dreaming: celebrating 100th blog post



What you are reading now actually marks the 100th post on this blog, Never Stop Dreaming, which I started last year as a convenient way to give voice to my feelings, share ideas and events and exchange opinions on various issues. It's been a little over 75 weeks when I first posted at this blog. Earlier, blogging was just an extension to my habit of writing daily diary - a time off thing to avoid boredom and loneliness - but, soon it became a passion. I started to see blogging as a wonderful medium to convey and exchange my feelings. It became a place where I could explicitly express myself. I have tried to be regular in blogging but at times, my social and personal commitments have made it difficult. Today, as I am posting this 100th entry, it gives me immense satisfaction having reached this small milestone. And, your precious company provides me with a reason to look beyond. Today, your visit has reassured me that I am not alone walking on this road. I treasure this feeling of togetherness.


'Never Stop Dreaming' kicked off on May 23, 2008 and later changed to the blogger- hosted custom domain www.deependrajha.com from September 16, 2009 onwards. Out of 100 posts (including this one), this blog has featured nine articles from some of the eminent guest authors. I take this opportunity to show my gratitude to all the guest writers: Er. Navaraj Karki for writing a couple of wonderful articles on the status of electricity in Nepal; my friend from Sri Lanka, Hasitha Ariyaratne, for penning many useful articles related to computer technology, my friend Boga Thura Manatsha from Botswana for authoring an informative article on the stunning success story of Botswana from one of the world's poorest countries to an 'economic miracle'; my friend Dr. Ramesh Kumar Bhandari for penning a technical article on the prospects of solar installations in Nepalese context; and my cousin Mukesh Jha, who is a USA based IT support Tech., for writing a couple of informative and inspiring articles. You all have actually added a new dimension to this blog. It's been my pleasure and privilege to have you all here.

I have tried to share my thoughts on different topics through this blog. Out of my blog entries, almost one fourth are poems. I am not a poet or someone close to this title. I just try to express my deep and intense feelings through words, and that's it. Through poetry, I try to accumulate my emotions that may reflect some aspects of my life that need talking about. In a way, this blog has been the journal of my journey - a journey called life!

Now, it's the time to reflect on the some of the most popular posts on this blog. based on visitors choice. Let me share the 3 most popular blog entries at 'Never Stop Dreaming':
  1. The Japanese culture of shame and suicide
  2. A birthday wish to someone special
  3. Does terrorrism belong to any religion? : The context of Mumbai terror attacks
There have been several ups and downs while coming all the way down to this post, and I have no doubt that it will continue to be so in accordance with what I'm feeling and how I'm responding to my emotions, with the degree to which I'm immersed in my writing. But, I think I enjoy blogging, now more than ever. Because, the feeling of sharing ideas with you all is satisfying in itself. I enjoy being a participant in this vibrant world of blogging. This blog has introduced me to a widening circle of fellow blogger and many visitors who I wouldn’t have known otherwise. Through this medium, I managed to rediscover my own old friend circle after a fairly long time. Believe me, I've very little to complain about.

If this is your first time visiting this blog, I would like to welcome you! Please take a look of the archives and browse through some of the posts. I believe you will find many stuffs interesting and informative. If you’re a regular visitor, thank you so much for your loyal support. Because, this blog would have no meaning without you all. Never Stop Dreaming.

I see that you are into blogging as well. Blogging is now becoming the new fad, especially for new comers. Look at free blogging platforms like Tumblr, they are simply going through the roof. It is no no surprise why blogging is so popular today because it is a cool, hip way to make money online.

I just connected with you on GFC yesterday and noticed this today when logged into BlogTopSites. I have yet to read from the archives though I had commented yesterday on a poetic post. I generally pause at blogs of good writing while surfing or browsing a directory for favoriting them. I've added you.

I had also written about my 100th post Celebrating the Centum recently on my blog. It took me a little longer by calendar reckoning but for about a year & half I was completely dormant.

Congratulations! One other point I look for when I visit new blogs is resonance of thoughts & ideas. Which has induced me to create a Facebook page Resonance Network which I would invite you to for a peek [see it on a sidebar on my blog].

Hoping to be coming here often.
